Opel is threatened with forced transfer and dismissal

Opel had actually planned until the end of the year 650 jobs to be cut in Bochum. 'So far, only 170 people have signed up for the severance payment and signed the severance agreement,' said Einenkel. Some of them switch to transfer companies. In addition, there are 70 employees who work on trial in the better-utilized main plant in Rüsselsheim. There are vacancies there that they could switch to. In total, the GM subsidiary in Bochum wants to cut 1,800 of 4,800 jobs.

And, as a last step, even redundancies for operational reasons would be possible,' said Einenkel.
